Choosing a Radio

Picking a suitable radio for satellite work is probably one of the hardest things you will have to decide. its always recommended to operate duplex, this means you can transmit and receive at the same time, to achieve this you will either need a radio that supports it or two separate radios.

At the moment there is no suitable duplex FM handheld radio on the market, which is a shame, however if you can find a Kenwood TH-D72E these are well suited for FM satellites, due to the fact this is the case, picking two low cost FM handhelds is usually a good decision.

Todo: Needs text on using linear satellites, Dual FT-818s or carrying a more fixed station radio.
